About this app

The MMGuardian Parental Control app for the parent's phone is used to manage and monitor the MMGuardian Child App installed on a teen's or pre-teen's Android or iPhone directly from the parent's phone. Similar to mspy, it receives alerts when text messages, certain social media chat messages or web searches are indicative of drugs, sexting, cyberbullying, child grooming, violence, suicidal thoughts and more. But it is way better than mspy due to its high accuracy on identifying safety risks using AI. With the MMGuardian Parental Control Child app installed to your child's Android phone, you will be able to monitor and block: • SMS text messages • Web browsing activity • Application usage • To whom voice calls are made*

Social Media Chat Monitoring

In addition to normal SMS texts, chat messages from Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Instagram, TikTok and Discord are reported. Also, alerts will be sent if the content in a chat message appears to relate to one of nine special alert categories including sexting, cyberbullying and suicidal thoughts. The benefits of using MMGuardian Parental Control when your child has an Android phone include: • Alerting you when text messages or web searches are indicative of sexting, cyberbullying, suicidal thoughts and more. • Alerting you when pictures on your child's phone, or sent in an MMS message, are of an adult nature or indicative of sexting. • Comprehensive reports covering: - SMS and selected social media app text messages. - Usage of applications - Web browsing using the Chrome browser - Voice Calls* • Locate your child's phone, on a map. • Lock or Unlock the child's phone with a simple button press • Set or edit configurations for: - Screen time limits: set up bed time and school times to control screen time. - Application control: block or set up usage limits for apps and games. - SMS block and Call block*: block calls and texts with undesirable contacts. - Scheduled locate: set times to automatically locate the phone. - Web Filter: block browsing of undesired sites in Chrome, Firefox and other leading browsers, using easy age-based settings or customized rules. You will need to install and register the MMGuardian App For Child Phone app on your child's Android phone. The child phone can be linked to the parent phone app only when both are registered using the same email address and password. Both your phone and your child's phone should have network data capability, as the app uses data to send and receive configuration commands, reports and alerts. You may purchase subscriptions or licenses to apply to the MMGuardian Parental Control app installed on your child's Android phone from within this Parent App, to avoid having to add payment credentials (credit cards etc) to your child's Google Play account. After the free 14 day trial period of the app on the child's phone has ended, unless the child phone app is licensed or has an ongoing subscription, the functions in the Parent App that relate to premium functions on the child's app will be disabled. However you can still use MMGuardian to locate, or to lock or unlock your child's Android phone remotely. Single phone subscriptions are available at USD $3.99 monthly or USD $34.99 annually, and a 5 Year License is available for USD $79.99. Family plans covering up to 5 devices are available at twice the single phone price. Unlike mspy and other spying apps, we highly encourage parents to discuss the reasons to use a parent control app with their children, to help protect them from potential risks of their own actions and the actions of others, such as excessive screen time, cyberbullying and sexting.

I used to really like the app. But here recently it's not updating me on anything. It's saying nothing downloaded. The text message part of it isn't working rite only shows certain texts and multiples of the same text. The location tracking part isn't working either. I've even messaged support but still nothing. So not very happy at all. If it continues I will delete and go with another parent app.

Hi Becky, I don't see your ticket in our support inbox, but if our support team's response didn't help you, please let them know so that they can provide further instructions. It can take a bit to figure out the issue due to the complexity of the app and smartphones, but they should be able to help you get everything working properly again. Thanks!

I could pretty much copy and paste Becky's review from 2wks ago. Only some texts show up and multiples of the same one, doesn't update what apps have been downloaded, location doesn't work, doesn't show phone calls, not doing a very good job of blocking social media/chat and messaging apps when I selected to have them blocked.

I like the app, but I feel like half the time it just can't pull an update from the watched device. I was thinking it would be more responsive. It works better than I ever thought possible honestly, but after seeing it's potential I think it could still use a little work. Main problems: 1)when I hit refresh it says that its getting an update from the device but fails, then sends me a text from the device. 2) I wish I control the apps that I can prevent from being used and allow them when I want from my phone (although this isn't much of a problem) 3) the location is not always working, I feel it needs to be a little more responsive because sometimes a 5 minute delay could mean i miss something. I'm sure that the delay issues might have something to do with the device going to sleep and possibly disabling WiFi and internet to preserve battery, but I know you guys can find a way around it. Lastly, the most important, its way too easy to remove the app and I don't know if there's a way to disable that but that would be great. Kids are absolute nightmares
